supreme court decision that the law was constitutional and the election where we chose one later who advocated one approach over a later advocated another. as we look going forward to the next five years in particular, i would say that there are going to be five very specific levels within which all of this is going to unfold and for which we will see enormous transformational change. the first and most imminent factor perhaps will be congress itself. congress is unlikely to change the affordable care act finding the necessary votes in both the house and senate and getting the necessary presidential signature so i don't expect any immediate changes with regards to the law itself but we do have an enormous opportunity to change the public programs, medicare and medicaid recognizing that it is a significant budget and cost driver and realizing that by simply changing these two major programs, they can be an engine for change in the entire healthcare marketplace. there, congress has a choice between cutting programs and just shifting the cost on to somebody else, which we have done
